We believe that Art is the most beautiful form of expressing yourself, spreading joy, living the moments, depicting ideas and concepts in a manner that is easily understandable to all and requires no particular knowledge about a language. It’s a language in itself which does not divide people but unites people in the most pure form. It has power to stir people’s hearts and souls.
Antardhwani has members who are involved in four Art forms, namely:
Our goal is to provide a platform to the students where they can showcase their talent and also build relationships with other colleges and students which are based on any Art-be it Dance, Dramatics, Music or Fashion through active participation and interactive measures.
Being vibrant in providing several opportunities to students both within and outside campus which would further help them in exploring their hidden talent and nurturing them.
The main objective of the Cultural Committee is to foster the cultural life of the college students under the university’s jurisdiction and to implement measures to promote the integration of a cultural dimension in the lives of all the students.
